Match Notes

  • Northants crush sorry Essex

    Northamptonshire's early season form has suggested that are promotion candidates as David Willey runs through Essex

  • Crook and Copeland flay ragged Essex

    The exasperation induced by the wagging tail is something Northamptonshire's opponents might become familiar with this season

  • Crook demonstrates Northants' potential

    Northamptonshire weren't touted as promotion contenders but few counties have started 2013 better. Rain denied them victory at Glamorgan last week and here the vaunted Essex batting line-up were dismissed for 183.
